Pre-K & K learn about the different instruments in an orchestra, wind ensemble, and a rock band. We integrate a lot of music, fun songs, and movement interventions to help the students learn the basics of music.
First through Fourth grades learn rudimentary music theory (name of notes, simple rhythms, instrument names and families), along with songs and music from other cultures and/or other languages.
Fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth grade learn how music relates to their everyday lives, hobbies, and possible professions. They also learn about how music functions in society and how it connects world history and cultural landmarks/events.
- Third and fourth grades learn the recorder
- Fifth grade learns the ukulele or guitar
